Imagine Dragons Frontman Dan Reynolds Discusses Writing on the Road and Performing in the Sky

Credit: Eliot Lee HazelOn Tuesday’s Good Morning America, Imagine Dragons stopped by to promote their second studio album, Smoke + Mirrors, which hits shelves today. Frontman Dan Reynolds told George Stephanopoulos that he wrote a lot of the lyrics for Smoke + Mirrors while touring.

“I’m not much of a party animal so at the end of the day I’d go back my hotel room and kind of just write my thoughts,” Reynolds said. “After a show I’d go back and the neighbor would pound on the door at like 2:00 A.M. at the hotel room, like, ‘Come on man, stop singing!’ But, you know, you do what you got to do.”

Not only does Smoke + Mirrors drop today, but tickets to Imagine Dragons’ 39-city tour in support of the album also go on sale today via LiveNation.com. Metric will be the tour’s opening band.

Before they launch their full-scale Smoke + Mirrors trek, Imagine Dragons will be performing miles in the air on an flight from Las Vegas to Atlanta, Georgia. The in-flight concert coincides with the band’s much smaller, and much more intimate, warmup tour.

“We’re bringing out some of our fans that were there from the beginning seven years ago and fly to the small little clubs we started playing with them and we’re going to do a show on the plane,” explained Reynolds. “I don’t know how we’re going to do that yet. Over the P.A., I don’t know.”

Imagine Dragons also took the stage at GMA to perform their gigantic hit, “Radioactive.”

Smoke + Mirrors is out now.
